The Lovereading4Kids comment
Inspired by Jeanette Winterson's love of Christmas traditions and retelling old stories, The Lion, The Unicorn and Me is a new version of a familiar tale. It cuts to the heart of what is moving about the very first Christmas, and reminds us all of the power and beauty of that ancient story. It’s a book to be cherished by families for years to come.
The Lion, the Unicorn and Me by Jeanette Winterson
In this beautifully evocative retelling of the story of the very first Christmas, the humble donkey is chosen above all the other animals, including the kingly lion and the proud unicorn, for a vital journey of discovery and wonder. This retelling has been compiled by the award-winning and world-renowned novelist Jeanette Winterson. She has created a masterful and deftly crafted story that sparkles with originality, humour and warmth. It is perfectly complemented by some stunning illustrations from the pen of a newcomer to the world of book illustration, Rosaline MacCurrach.
'..Winterson’s writing style is gently humorous and her language delightful.. The illustrations in this book are exquisite and as the story progresses they are splashed with gold, making them feel even more special.. A perfect story for sharing with children as Christmas day approaches.' Booktrust
'A stunningly beautiful book in every way, The Lion, the Unicorn and Me is a clever retelling of the traditional nativity story... a must-read for all generations.' Inis Magazine
